– The Village Voice

“She offers the pleasure of brazen theatrical inventiveness” –
The New Yorker

“Lee confirms herself as one of the best experimental playwrights in America.”
– Time Out New York

“Her work constantly turns itself inside out. It’s also constantly fascinating.”
– The Wall Street Journal

“The clearest indication that the avant-garde isn’t dead, and has never been funnier.”
– New York Magazine
